It's not what you think it is. Well, it is a podcast ep recorded in the LA PodFest Squarespace podcasting lounge. It does contain three very funny people in Wil Anderson, Steele Saunders and Dave Anthony (the latter seemingly believing he needs to be on EVERY PODCAST IN THE WORLD). This episode's things include: is sitting in the world's most annoying room a thing?, Australia being America's bitch, Wil Anderson's Buzzfeed list as a thing & is Ash Williams a thing? (you'll be surprised with...

Another one from the LA PodFest Squarespace podcasting lounge. Matt Kirshen is, quite frankly, and oddity in LA. A nice, well spoken, seemingly-unencumbered-by-ego Englishman living and working in America on the comedy circuit. Successfully. I KNOW, RIGHT? In this episode Matt and Steve Molk have decided a range of things just for YOU: Are Benobo penises at thing?, Scottish Independence & Life as a Brit in the US. Special Guest: Matt Kirshen.

Steve Molk sat down with these giants of LA comedy to discuss things like is body modification a thing? (three made-up boobs and all), being the naughty uncle & Are Kiwis on the Gold Coast a thing?...

We're back from LA PodFest Squarespace podcasting lounge and this time, it's personal... or at least related to a person. Joined by ever delightful Aussie Alicia Malone and the equally as delightful Kentuckian Michelle Mahone this time around Steve Molk got down to business with the ladies sorting out the things, including are Nude TV shows a thing?, is reality TV a thing (Wanna Marry Harry anyone?) and are film remakes a thing (already)?

Jane Kennedy, Alice Zaslavsky & George Donikian sit down to discuss the big things from a media perspective. Game of Thrones, Vuvuzelas, Rhodesian Ridgebacks - no stone is left unturned as the search for truth and the deciding of things is sought.

More joyous joy from LA PodFest, this time with comedians Jake Johannsen (@jakethis) & of Walking The Room/The Dollop/Guest Charlie Number One fame Dave Anthony (@daveanthony). Confusion reigns as accent wars take place, as does the general consensus that nobody really knows what they're talking about. Steve Molk barely keeps up. Special Guest: Dave Anthony.

Joined by the gorgeous Bonnie McFarlane at LA PodFest Steve Molk decides it's reasonable to discuss some of the more intimate matters in a very public place. Are dick pics a thing? Should men talk about private women's business? Does Bonnie really hate her husband as her podcast with beau Rich Vos suggests? There are no real answers - only postulations and premises supposed... just don't come to either Bonnie or Molk for dating advice.

It had to come. It was overdue. Rove McManus and Wil Anderson decided not only was it reasonable for them to take over this episode of the Thing Committee but that there was no way Steve Molk was going to survive with his skin in tact. It's brutal for its honesty and hilarity and right now Molk just needs a cuddle. Special Guests: Rove McManus and Wil Anderson.
